Golden Star Acquires Mop Manufacturing Companies

Following their recent acquisition of Premier Mop & Broom, in California, Golden Star Inc., based in Lenexa, KS, has acquired two additional mop manufacturing companies.

Effective immediately, Golden Star will assume all account information, manufacturing, and order fulfillment responsibilities for: Lafitte Mop Co., Inc., of Villa Rica, GA; and Amarillo Mop & Broom, of Amarillo TX.

Golden Star, operating out of seven manufacturing facilities worldwide, is a global manufacturer of a complete line of hard surface cleaning products. With over 115 years of manufacturing excellence, the company provides cleaning products and solutions that set the standard for performance, safety, productivity, and cleanliness.

Golden Star’s Co-CEOs/Presidents, Earl Julo and Steve Lewis, are thrilled about the opportunities these companies offer. Regarding the company’s newest acquisitions, Earl Julo stated, “We admire both organizations tremendously and that’s why we chose to align with them. We appreciate Darrel Knight and the energy he’s put into growing the Amarillo Mop & Broom business. In addition, we’ve also enjoyed getting to know John and Cathy Lafitte. They are very special people who share our same core values. They have built a loyal customer base over the last 50 years, which is a testament to their hard work and dedication to Lafitte Mop Company.”
